Erdogan: US Has Lost «Mediator Role» in Middle East
Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday the United States had forfeited its role as a mediator in the Middle East by moving its "Israel" embassy to al-Quds [Jerusalem].
"The United States has chosen to be a part of the problem rather than the solution with its latest step and has lost its mediating role in the ‘peace process'," Erdogan said in a speech at Britain's Chatham House think tank.
"We once again reject this decision, which is violating international law and conflicting with the UN decisions," he said.
"We cannot stop feeling like being in dark days of pre-World War II," Erdogan said on the embassy move.
The Turkish president also spoke about many regional and international conflicts and problems in his address.
The US is due to officially move its embassy from Tel Aviv to al-Quds on Monday in a move that has delighted the "Israeli" entity but infuriated Palestinians.
